I'm not a fan of the big center-mount tank bags.
Not a fan of a big bag either, but I decided it was better than always running a tail bag, as I like the look of the bike without a tail bag. I went with the Givi 20 liter tanklock bag. Got used to the size pretty quick, and it pops off the tank in seconds when getting gas.

I got the built tank bag. It was on sale and I needed one. I surprisingly really like it. It is a little big for a tank bag, but since it's magnetic, it doubles as a tail bag.. the magnets are super strong!

I went for the Triumph tank bags, the smaller one is called the city bag, and matches the city tail pack. The larger one is called the adventure bag and you guessed it, it matches the adventure tail pack. They are both expandable. The harness even looks smart on its own without a bag installed.
I don't like riding with things in my pockets for in case I fall off and land on them (not concerned about damaging them, more the damage they will do to me) so my tank bag will have my keys, wallet, phone etc. and still have room to fit spare gloves, goggles, and the larger one will fit a pair of shoes and a change of clothes (jeans and a t-shirt anyway).

Congrats, you'll love em. Did these cans come with the dual hinge setup? That feature is really handy

Yep. They're pretty awesome. Got the top case and crashbars too. Only other cases with exhaust cut out besides the touratechs and they're a grand less. Also work with stock exhaust. Can't beat em.

Jesse have a cutout, too.



As do Happy Trails, if this is considered a cutout.

I used their mounting bracket bolted to my Jesse Luggage Rack. If I plan to use my panniers, then I'll move the mount to my top rack.

Weren't you the same guy complaining about safety of clutch/brake levers being too sharp and you go hack a bolt/screw combination flammable container on the OUTSIDE of your panniers

Their customer service is top notch, quality is just as good. How do you like that 2MM thick aluminum? Sweet huh

Didn't think about it but they do seem thicker than my vstrom's sw motech panniers.

I got the tour version and it is perfect. Purchased here:
http://www.twistedthrottle.com/mra-x...blade-clamp-on

Yes, very expensive for what it is, but it works 100%. The only problem was that the item comes in a box with about a jillion pieces you have to put together with instructions that are fairly useless. If you enjoyed legos as a kid, or even a rubik cube, then you should have only minor assembly issues.
